Day 2: The Fresh Diet

Second day on the diet and the first full day I knew I would be around the house. I thought today was a good day to try to do the diet they way it is intended – eating only the Fresh Diet food and nothing else. It didn’t work well. I was starving all day long. Because I didn’t get full on these foods, I grabbed unhealthy fillers. I think I’ll do better if I go back to eating their foods as a “part” of the regular healthy eating choices I’ve been trying to make.


Cinnamon Swirl Multi-Grain French Toast with Fresh Apples and Blackberry Ricotta Cheese.

The French toast was very good, but I was frustrated that it wasn’t even one whole piece of bread. It was also way too dry as it came, so I used just a touch of butter after heating it up. The apples were good. There were about 6 slices – not wedges, thin slices not even as thick as a knife blade. And I’m still not a fan of the ricotta cheese dip.


Greek Salad with Bulgarian Feta Cheese, Cucumber, Yellow & Green Tomato, Romaine Lettuce & Basil Vinaigrette

The salads from Fresh Diet have been incredible. This one was no exception. However, I didn’t realize it didn’t have any kind of meat until I was taking it out to eat. I did NOT get full on this, so I pulled out my leftovers from yesterday and ate them as well.

Spicy Chickpea Patty with Cilantro Lime and Green Chillies. with Curried Cauliflower Mash and Grilled Asparagus

To be honest, I didn’t know what a Chickpea patty was when I ordered this. It was supposed to be covered by the chili sauce, but the sauce smelled more like bell peppers than chilies, cilantro or lime so I actually didn’t use it at all. I loved the cauliflower mash – similar to mashed potatoes, but healthier – and the grilled asparagus. I added just a bit of salt and pepper, heated it according to instructions and ate every last bite.

Red & Yellow Tomato with Goat Cheese & Fresh Basil

Unfortunately, there was no yellow tomato part of this dish. Apparently my calorie count only allows for one tomato slice and the one I got was red. It tasted very good even though I had let it sit in the fridge an additional day.


Stuffed Chicken Asiago & Tarragon with Whole Wheat Linguine Pasta and Roasted Fennel

The stuffed chicken asiago was good. It was nice to finally have meat! There were only a few noodles included, but they were quite good. Now the roasted fennel and I struggled. I couldn’t figure out how to eat it and I’m pretty sure I’ve never had fennel before in my life. It has a pretty strong flavor, kind of like a sweet onion maybe. But the texture is different more like a cooked artichoke I think. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to eat the whole thing or not, so I kind of picked at this.


Artichoke Bottoms Filled with Creamy Cauliflower

Put off for tomorrow.


Apple Cinnamon Cheese Cake

This cheesecake was clearly not real cheesecake, but it was good nonetheless. I enjoyed every bite of this and wish I had the recipe!


  1. You had said yesterday that this was ment to be 1800 cal - this does not sound anywhere close to that - this sounds like it is less than 1000 to me, but I could be wrong (I lost 110 pounds last year and ate WAY more than this in a day, every day) you are nursing, I was a LLLeader for years, and would advise you to ask advice from someone in your area or watch your babe I(sorry not sure the age of your baby/toddler) because on this intake your milk will dry up - not a question at all in my mind. Sorry if I sound harsh SO not trying to, I love that you want to eat healthy, and be a good example for your kids ect, but this really looks more like starvation than a "healthy diet" just my very humble opinion. Go on with your review now LOL, I know you are just reviewing this, and it is presumably just short term ;)

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
